Insert the picture of your choice and make the necessary adjustments to make sure that it fits on the page. You must also ensure that you mirror or reverse the photograph horizontally before printing it. This can let the photograph to face the right way when you transfer it to the bag.

Press down hard using your weight and make sure that all elements of the transfer paper have been ironed.When you are done ironing, peel off the backing from the transfer paper, if there’s any. The photo should now appear on the bag.
